in security at beirut, in benghazi, why is he not talking about that? why suspect he gets the fbi investigation going? so many things where presidential leadership is required to steady the ship, but he's so distracted by the campaign, and frankly, has been for more than a year. gerri: interrupting for a second, breaking news. as we are showing you down below, chicago teachers voting to suspend their strike. again, chicago teachers voting to suspend the strike saying they'll go back to school tomorrow. all the chicago school kids back in school. we'll have more details on this a little later for you in the show, and this has been an interesting tension within the white house. >> right. gerri: because the president's former adviser, the mayor of chicago, he's been begging the teachers to sign a deal to come back to the table, go back to work, and it's taken some time for that to happen. does that play out in the election? >> sure. i think it was an embarrassment to the president as well. the teachers' unions are close to the democratic party, and the president, he and the secretary

and walked the streets of benghazi myself, and despite what we saw in that horrific incident where some mob was hijacked ultimately by a handful of extremists, the united states is extremely popular in libya and the outpouring of sympathy and support for ambassador stevens and his colleagues from the government and from people as evidence of that, the fact is, candy, that this is a turbulent time. it's a time of dramatic change. it's a change that the united states has backed because we understand tt when democracy takes root, when human rights and people's freedom of expression can be manifested, it may lead to turbulence in the short-term, but over the long-term, that is in the interest of the united states. the mobs we've seen on the outside of these embassies are small minority. they're the ones who have largely lost in these emerging democratic processes, and just as the people of these countries are not going to allow their lives to be hijacked by a dictator, they're not going to allow an extremist mob to hijack their future and their freedom, and we're going to continue to stand with
of the benghazi incident in which he was deemed by most people, including many on his own side, to have jumped in with a critical statement of the president really without knowing all the facts and turning it into a political football when most people thought that was the wrong thing to do. >> i agree. >> as an american politician at that time. >> absolutely. when our country is attacked in any way, shape or form, we need to pull will together, come together, not separate at that point. i mean, you know what i would do over there? i would do what the pinnacle of the republican party, the hero, whatever of modern day, ronald reagan did. do you recall when back in the '80s the barracks in lebanon was hit and over 200 marines were killed? did ronald reagan go to war? no. he got us the hell out of there. and that's where i stand on this. if these people don't want us over there, let's close our embassies. i stand with ron paul. let's get rid of foreign aid altogether, because, as ron paul put it, the definition of "foreign aid," that's taking from america's poor and giving it to another country's
